Park Head with views of the towering sea stacks and the picturesque Bedruthan Steps in the foreground. Whether the sea is calm or stormy, this is an iconic and unforgettable view of North Cornwall.

It’s these very views which appealed to the team creating Poldark, so keep an eye out for scenes featuring Ross on horseback galloping across this very headland.
